Veterans’ Benefits Rating and Rates
Veterans who have disabilities, medical conditions or injuries incurred or aggravated during active military service — no matter when or where they served — may be eligible to receive tax-free monthly benefits.

Covid-19 was the leading cause of death
The number of officers who died in 2021 was 458, a 55 percent jump from 2020
VA disability compensation benefits are a monthly, tax-free payment to Veterans who were injured, sustained a
long-term illness or experienced a worsening medical condition during their military service.
How to file a claim for disability compensation
The COVID-19 pandemic has not halted the claims process. Veterans can still file claims,
and VA is still processing them. VA recommends filing a claim online, but it can still be done in person or through the mail.
Step One: Prepare documents before starting your application

The Soldiers Came Home Sick. The Government Denied It Was Responsible.
U.S. service members and veterans have long insisted that the military’s garbage-disposal fires
in war zones made them ill. Why were their claims stonewalled for so long?
In the last two years, as the pandemic raged, many decided to stay in,
lessening the pressure on recruiting to help keep the Army at its full strength of 485,000.

After Defrauding Government Out of $346 Million in Contracts Meant for Vets and Minorities
Seven years ago, a study by the Social Security Administration pointed out that the VA and the SSA
“may not integrate well.” The agencies added regulations to help fast-track veterans who have a 100% disability rating
from the VA. But it can take up to seven years to get approval for disability through the VA, according to VA records.
It can take another two or more years to get approved by the SSA.
